Semiya Vegetable Pulao

Semiya pulao is one of those dishes that I can eat anytime of the day….it’s subtle in flavor, nutritious and has that acidic kick that tastes so so good! I made this for my husband yesterday and he enjoyed it with some mango pickle on the side. Hope you try this healthy version of the MTR Vegetable Pulao Recipe:)
